LGBT Adoption & Fostering Week 2017 LGBT Adoption & Fostering Week 2017 takes place from 6th - 12th March. We'll be reaching out to lesbian, gay, bi and trans people and asking them to consider adoption. We are looking for resilient and resourceful individuals and couples from all communities who feel able to love, support and care for children who have experienced a chaotic life during their early years. Recent studies have shown that LGBT people are more open to adopting siblings, children with attachment difficulties, older children and children with behavioural difficulties. In England in 2016, 1 in 10 adoptions were to same-sex couples. LGBT Adoption & Fostering Week is organised by New Family Social, of which Adoption Focus is a proud member agency. New Family Social is a nationwide support network and the only UK charity led by LGBT adopters and foster carers. Our membership allows all of our LGBT adopters and applicants free access to the excellent support and social events offered by New Family Social. For more information on New Family Social click here.
